About > Message from His Highness
The United Arab Emirates this year celebrates its 50th as a nation. As we look toward the next 50 years, we must remember that it is our resilience, determination, and cooperation that has brought us to where we are today. It is these values that will continue the creative development of the UAE for the benefit of all its people and visitors. 2020 was a challenging year for many members of our community, so the ninth annual Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival arrives at a crucial time. This edition of the Festival is organized around the theme of Hope. It is a celebration of the strength and compassion that holds our community together. Art is key to our personal and community wellbeing and will continue to inspire the development of our Emirate and nation in the years to come. This year’s festival is an opportunity to appreciate humankind’s creativity and take stock of our resilience in the face of adversity. Let us now look toward the future with hope and come together to build a better world for our children.
His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi
UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah
